that and cladding the ramp could be counterproductive, now you know what it is, if they clad it, you know everyone will be complaning "whats with that round thing off the side, it looks awful".

They have been working on a transfer floor for several weeks since they have arrived at the second setback. That is why it is not currently rising.

Powerful façade!

Stylish, sober and I´m sure it will be great even in 20 years from now!

Looks amazing! so does the river, and all of those trees... would definitely get a place there if I ever wanted to live in Chicago......

Bravo for this building, one of the best projects going up anywhere in the world right now.

Wow, this Trump dude really has a lot of money to be putting so much into skyscrapers. I can't complain though

Nice tower, Chicago is lucky.

Does anyone have, or can make, a diagram that shows the height of Trump when completed next to the Hancock, Sears, and Aon. I'm having trouble visualizing just how tall this will be when completed and seeing it next to the current tallest in Chicago will help.

Interesting... Those existing supertalls and two of them are under construction right now are almost same height except Sears Tower... I think Chicago should get high diverse of supertalls with heights. If Chicago Spires gets built... It should be somewhat helpful. I hope to see Chicago to construct more and more high diverse of supertalls with different heights.
